Elements for March

We have a fabulous picture found by Nat for our March Elemental Inspiration challenge this week on the Daring Cardmakers.

You need to use at least three elements from the picture to use on your card, the colours can only be counted as one element. 

 Materials and Tools:
Background stencilled with Fresco Finish paints 
Paper: MME "Find your Wings and Fly", various paper pads
Large flower created using MFT Poinsettia die set
Taylored Expressions Twirly Swirly die set
Small flowers made with EK Success punch
Twine, Gift charm, gems, pearls and enamel dots

Inspiration Picture
So from the picture I chose; The big flowery bow from the gift on the lower left, Triangles from the wrapping paper for the bunting, Twine (bunting, bow for charm and tag), Gift (the little charm), Confetti - I used the pearls and enamel dots for mine, Swirls - mine are paper rather than twine, and the Spring Colours

This is a really fun challenge to try, and I hope you'll give it a try - head over to the DCM BLOG to see how the rest of the team have used the picture to create their beautiful cards this week

Great take on the inspiration and you certainly managed more than three elements there!

This is beautiful and funky. Look at all the white space !! xxx

I love how you've managed to add lots of little details, yet there's still white space, and it doesn't look fussy. Very hard to do, but you've really pulled it off.

I'm completely in love with this card. It's fresh and fun and all that bling is great, too.
